Something hunts people on the outskirts of town in… Little Girls
Image Comics has announced an eerie, hauntingly original graphic novel, Little Girls, by debut creators Nicholas Aflleje and Sarah DeLaine, set to hit shelves in March 2019.
In Little Girls, readers meet Sam, who has been an outsider all her life. That might have been the case even if her father hadn’t dragged her all around the globe, but it sure didn’t help. Every year, another school and another word for foreigner. Why would things be any different in Harar, Ethiopia? Well, for one thing, there’s Lielet—an outspoken and rebellious local girl who has all the makings of a lifelong friend. Then there is the city itself—a crossroad of cultures and traditions woven together through time that make it feel like anything’s possible. Also, there’s something hunting people on the outskirts of town…
As the disappearances start piling up, Sam and Lielet decide they might be the only ones willing to do anything about it. But as these two young friends bravely strike out into the dark on an exciting new adventure, they soon find that the night has teeth.
Little Girls, OGN (ISBN: 978-1-5343-1059-9) hits comics shops on Wednesday, March 26th and bookstores on Tuesday April 2nd. It can be pre-ordered via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indiebound, and Indigo.
